What Does Haveing A Tight Prostate Mean

PSA level went from 1 to 16 now to 14

Answer

A "tight" prostate refers to the portion of the urethra that runs through the center of the prostate, the prostatic urethra, that is being squeezed by a large prostate.

This problem is commonly referred to as BPH and can be relieved with the use of several medications or minimally invasive procedures.
